Coldspring-Oakhurst is No. 2. Carthage, after falling to Jacksonville 34-30, fell to ninth from third. The Bulldogs are tied with Gilmer as the Buckeyes entered the poll after a 31-17 win over Atlanta.

In Class 2A, Refugio received all 21 first-place votes to top the poll. Cameron Yoe is second. Tatum is fifth, while Corsicana Mildred enters the poll at No. 9. Daingerfield, which lost to Gladewater 31-14, fell from third to 10th.
